I brewed a week ago today. Within 3 hours I could tell I needed to get a big blow off tube ready. Like you said, it was pretty violent. Within 48 hours it settled down so I went to my normal setup and was getting activity about every 15 seconds. Within 4 days it picked up again, activity every 5 seconds..... I may name this "Strange Brew". Sure does smell good!
